Advice on pastry shops please...

Hello, this is my first time posting here. I have really enjoyed following the posts here.

I was hoping to get some advice for my trip to Tokyo (probably January or February 2010.) I will only have a couple days in Tokyo, so I'd like to make the most of my time.

There are a few French pastry shops I'd love to visit during my stay: Sadaharu Aoki, Henri Charpentier, Hidemi Sugino, and Laduree. Is it true that some department stores carry these lines in their food departments? (if so, which ones are located in depachikas? is it the same variety) Or is it much better to go to the free standing stores?

If you have a favorite, which would you recommend? I appreciate any other recs!

Thank you in advance!
